Review summary

Enjoyable 1st Xmas Cruise would recommend to solo travelers

Embarkation

5 out of 5
P&O. Have a great entertainments team. The inside cabin was comfortable. Only have 9 tv channels, at least 3 were P&O only. Plenty of dining choices. I was on 2nd sitting 8.30 pm. Late show in theatre 10.30-10.45 pm. Other venues could get very busy so more TV movie channels would be nice Travelled solo. Went to 4pm tea in Peninsular restaurant where tables for solo travellers are a great way of meeting people I use a walker but advised only certain excursions had buses with space for wheelchairs etc Taxi provided from airport to ship at start/finish of Cruise, brilliant

Some areas had eg Brodie’s bar the seats had been patched up an some carpets in communal areas need replacing Self service restaurants and outdoor bar areas, tables not cleared as soon as left and I noticed food under tables not swept up

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin clean n tidy. Had to ask for face clothes as none on arrival. Also the shower mat wasn’t replaced one day. Russel the steward helped getting my walker in/out. Asked if I could get a doorstop but nothing

Ship tip

Entertainment in theatre according to other passengers same as previous years eg U2/Duran Duran tribute bands and Roy Walker. No my choice If you don’t like a particular menu ask for choices from other menus
